HOW TO USE A LIFEJACKET PROPERLY

Wearing a lifejacket is one of the most important things you can do to increase safety afloat but unless you wear and maintain it correctly, it won’t work as well as it’s meant to if and when you fall into the water. Any Personal Flotation Device (PFD) provides buoyancy that helps keep you afloat. This is measured in Newtons and for most PFDs starts at 50N. However, from 150N upwards it should be buoyant enough to turn you face up even when unconscious, greatly improving your chances of survival.
